Why doesn't yuri sell? In theory it's the perfect anime genre.
We really need to start banning you /u/shits. This is getting scary.
No, you're not entitled to come to /a/ and start talking about the perfect anime has no "dirty boys".
No, you're not entitled to come here and start shitposting about "MUH PURE LOVE".
Get the fuck back to /u/ and stay there, you piece of shit.
Then clearly yuri failed then.
They just closed up shop. even Yuru YURI has no yuri by that logic.
When the genre bearer are shit like Sakura Trick and Kannzuki no Miko then clearly something went wrong.
Yuri can be good when done right, but when it's something like Sakura Trick where there isn't enough depth for the characters, then it really won't sell.
>People being buttmad about a spinoff of an eroge.
I'm still hoping for a remake the next 10 years with something like the far moon and the near moon with Illya and Caster routes. But knowing Nasu, he won't do anything but unlimited outsourced spinoffs.
But it does.
Love Live and Madoka are both very popular.
>Because it's preoccupied with being about girls loving girls
That's also part of the problem, because the stories are always completely detached from reality, the characters are shallow cardboard cuts and the love never feels genuine.
Candy boy is a good example of a girls loving girls story done right. The characters actually have personalities, emotions and they live in a realistic setting with convincing everyday problems.
>Just because I don't want to watch cute 2D lesbians making out doesn't mean I like sucking dicks
>If it has an all-girl cast it must be yuri!
Is LOGH yaoi?
There are females in LoGH though.
Yang wenli got a waifu, joshua got a gf..
That said Reinhard was obviously gay for Kircheis. Show no emotion even when a blonde fraulein was going all over his dick.
Both shows have some yuri subtext, but you need really, and I mean really, strong goggles to even think that yuri is the main theme of the show.
>In the 2000 book "The Changing Face of the Priesthood," Rev. Donald B. Cozzens suggested that the priesthood was increasingly becoming a gay profession. Cozzens estimated that as much as 58 percent of priests were gay, and that percentages were even higher for younger priests. His numbers matched previous estimates by sociologists who put the numbers of gay priests between 10 and 60 percent.
Because hardcore Christfags are just literal fags and dykes in denial.
>to even think that yuri is the main theme of the show
I'm not saying they are. In fact in both cases, it obviously isn't. But it's not simply a matter of shows with all female casts, either.
I've given up trying to wrap my head around this whole fucking concept. There are tons of shows that sell well and have very obvious yuri undertone to them, but it either stops at one-sided crush or comedic effect. Even though the show would NOT change in the least if two girls became an item in terms of plot of character interaction, but people are supposed to freak the fuck out when the girls actually act up on the romantic side. It supposedly scares off the viewers who were otherwise completely fine with cute girls being so intimate a kiss wouldn't be surprising to the viewers or any of the other characters in the show. No logic or coherence. It's just Japan.
This, stuff like Nanoha and Fate being together is just a Western invention, nobody in Japan thinks like that.
Actually, it's the exact opposite. Western fans are obsessed with "proof" of relationships and demand an on-screen confession and make-out session before accepting anything, whereas Japanese viewers tend to just go along with it. It's like the classic translation of "I love you" to "the moon is beautiful tonight" - as a culture, Japanese audiences don't ask for explicit, obvious phrasing as much.
1. Actual gay romance alienates the majority of viewers or people willing to pay, hardcore yuri fans are not big enough to sustain anime or even manga sales.
2. Said actual gay romance stuff is thus a really small niche in a medium that tries to brake even with merch.
3. Subtext or bait shit sells like hotcakes.
That's all there is to it, business decision based, not literary based, shits just too small to bother with most of the time. As much as I love it, I'm one of the assholes who complain for more but will probably never spend a cent.
the real question is why people get assblasted over this in 2015
Yuri is about as boring as hetero or yaoi, which is to say not much at all.
>anime panders to waifufags a lot these days
>hey let's establish that these girls are gay and would have had zero interest in the average male viewer, I am sure they would love that.
I like yuri homolust here and there and sometimes full homo, but mostly not, but I respect people who like it. Then there are these yurifaggots (not fans) who shitpost threads all the time, barging in and declaring characters gay over the most minor shit, they don't exactly give yuri fans a good image.
I went to a strip club once.
It was boring as fuck. There were women naked on stage dancing and spreading their legs and it was just absolutely the worst thing ever.
Then two of them started touching each other and I yelled at them to knock that shit off. I climbed up on stage to separate them and the fucking /u/fags down there started screaming at me to shut up and get down.
Those fucking dykes were also yelling and I told them all to go the fuck back to to /u/.
They couldn't manage a coherent response so they called the bouncers just like the typical butthurt yurifag calling the moderator.
That's why yuri doesn't sell and everyone who likes it is retarded.
DOnt spam, i dont know if you hate about chaggy or whatever, why dont you just take it to the real life? i'm sure that the anti-yuri has been doxxed before, just take it to the real life, spare this board with your childish fight
and the same can be said to >>121710699
you should take it to real life
What the shit? I got banned for "Spamming/Flooding" for much less in other threads before, it was pretty strict. You probably reported for illegal content to get that warning.
If not that lol moderation team since Moot left.
There's a pretty clear difference between image dumps that have been part of the site since day one and spamming/flooding. You're not a janitor or a moderator, so why not just shut up?
I'm not really that big on yuri (sometimes I just like seeing two girls getting intimate together but that's it) but what I see that sells nowadays are shows with yuri subtexts like Madoka or Yuuki Yuna. Why don't you guys satisfied with those? Do you really need the confirmations that the characters are gay? When they exist in a world where males don't or only exist as side/background characters (therefore they don't exist), how can they interested in the opposite sex? They can't betray you.
>shows with yuri subtexts like Madoka
The problem is people look for yuri in the wrong places. They take the subtext and blow it out of proportion.
Then again, I don't know.
>thread in wrong place.
>it's girls on girls in my face.
The world must burn.
Ok, before this thread dies, I want to ask a simple question. Why is Yuri considered "Pure Love"? Vagina's are way dirtier than penises. Penises produce love juice at the end of the ritual, vaginas flood the room with love juice from start to finish. You don't walk into a room where two people were having sex and smell penis, you always smell pussy. Also, they start bleeding globs of dead half-babies every month.
How on earth is Yuri pure?
Because it's boring, It's the same thing it never changes.
Yuri can only be good for so long before it loses it appeal because we've seen it 10 times before.
I think only Shippingfags are the only ones able to put up with the genre for so long.
When was the last time yuri sold? Don't give me some shit that happened in your imagination like Yuuki Yuuna.
>all this pointless shitposting
Lesbo is superior to yuri anyways.
I just sped read through this and had more fun each chapter than all of Citrus. I don't even know anymore, you have to be heavily biased toward yuri to find it better than most other genres.
If you hate yuri relationships altogether you're a retarded shitposter.
If you hate hetero relationships altogether, you're a retarded shitposter.
Neither of you different breeds of retards is better than the other. Fuck off and kill yourselves, all of you.
Yuru Yuri and Mai series
If you want to start a fucking yuri thread, why don't you just fucking start a thread about yuri manga that easily sorts out the shitposters? How many goddamn times do I have to keep saying this?
>that's more than pretty much any mahou shoujo besides maybe Homura can say.
VA mentioned in a tweet that "she [Tougou] is overflowing with love beyond friendship for Yuuna."
Later on the character booklet stated that "her heart is that of a maiden in love" whenever she's looking at Yuuna through her scope. Moreover, the kanji that they used for "love" in that sentence explicitly refers to romantic love
Even Urobuchi isn't completely opposed to the idea, when asked in an interview if Homura was in love with Madoka, he answered "Probably." He most likely just doesn't want to make the series about yuri.
I always forget about Sailor Moon. I guess those two girls from Mai-Otome count too.
Stop. Now. I'm not in the mood.
I said absolutely nothing about yaoishit, you stupid cunt. And you don't know how to use cuck. I can safely dismiss you as yet another fucking retard who doesn't know shit they're talking about. Just like all the retards who misuse edgy and Mary Sue.
Yuuna is definitely a prince. However, the fact that it's a girl with a canonical crush on another girl makes it yuri.
>Stop. Now. I'm not in the mood
VA comments aren't 100% canon (look at NanoFate), but an official character booklet is.
I came in to mention this is pretty pathetic, like digging through trash for scraps, holy shit. I remember seeing a few frames out of the entirety of Madoka where literally nothing happens to try to confirm a romantic relationship between someone and it blew my mind.
Usually people kiss, make out, grope each other, and fuck like in Sakura Trick if they're into each other, what is the point of this desperation?
It's called subtext for a reason, anon. And if you read the VN Tougou is really obviously in love with Yuuna.
I just think that it's hilarious how mad you're getting over an ellipsis.
>Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against unpleasant impulses by denying their existence in themselves, while attributing them to others. For example, a person who is rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude.
>According to some research, the projection of one's negative qualities onto others is a common process in everyday life.
If they worked on the show then I'm sure they know more about the characters than we do, I don't see how they could do a proper job otherwise. But it doesn't matter who confirms it, unless they fuck on screen you people just aren't going to accept it.
I am constantly trying to make yuri threads better by attacking anti-yuri and anti-hetero posters at once to show not everyone who likes yuri is a cancerous man hating shit. The only way to deal with irrational retards like either is to destroy their shitty arguments with as much venom as possible until they're forced to fuck off.
It had too much focus on lewd and not enough actual fun.
Didn't the anime end with
it turning out that the red-haired girl didn't understand romantic love and had thought that they were just friends?I would've been fucking pissed if I didn't know about that beforehand.
Did Madoka love Homura in the first timelines?
>Catholics can barely even be considered Christians, you can get a get out of Hell card for money and you worship Mary idols.
No you can't. Not anymore.
Time in Purgatory for Sins still applies after a valid (!) Penance.
No/Invalid Penance leads to Hell.
Valid Indulgence after a valid Penance can absolve one of Purgatory.
I wonder who could be behind this post...
I'll let you in on a secret, anon
People don't like yuri for girls kissing.
>not Sangeing away your file resolution
/u/ is one of /a/'s porn boards. SFW discussion of anything from /d/, /h/, /u/, /y/, or /e/ is all equally welcome in /a/.
If you're not interested, scroll down.
NSFW boards are, by definition, containment boards for the adult content, not for the subject.
Yuri is shit, pure love is between a man and his imouto, or a boy and his robot, or a tsundere and her high school senior, or a demon king and a cute half angel, or a teacher and her male student.
>pure love is between a woman and her imouto, or a girl and her robot, or a tsundere and her high school senior, or a demon queen and a cute half angel, or a teacher and her female student.
Honestly manga are where the action is.
Not a thing
This is why yuri is good, though. It delivers romance but can break out of the retarded tropes.
It's just a few shitposters. Yuri is the natural evolution of CGDCT.
>a demon queen and a cute half angel
We need more "out-there" yuri stories. There are all kinds of cool fantastic or futuristic settings, premises, and character dynamics around, but if you're looking for yuri, you basically only get schoolgirls.
When I realized that for 90% of the shows I was watching, the only characters they bothered even trying to make interesting were the girls. I'd rather read a relationship between two characters I give a fuck about than between one character and a cardboard cutout.
Same with Madoka.
Every thread posted via Madoka is a circlejerk.
I blame Madoka for all the shitposting in yuri threads. Since this isn't a an actual Madoka thread, you can't argue with me when I say Rebellion is the worst thing to ever happen to the series and the original ending was far better.
Son I am going to give you the same offer I gave you last night.
It's time we talked about unrealistic expectations.
And seeing as you conceive two overweight burger slappers slopping each others stinky juices "pure" we have a metric fuckton to talk about.
